3. Unauthorized use of the NNPA Logo, Name or Website
Any person or company that uses the NNPA logo, name or website without current membership status is in violation of the conditions of NNPA membership and agreements, and is subject to a minimum of $1,000.00 misrepresentation fee, as well as other expenses, including legal fees.

4. Please submit your audit (third party audit, publisher sworn statement – post office 2nd class mailing permit with entire circulation, etc. – on or before September 30, 2004) for your 2005 membership dues.
